How to Draw DNA Step by step

Please see the drawing tutorial in the video below


You can refer to the simple step-by-step drawing guide below

Step 1

Start by drawing a pair of lines, diagonally and parallel to each other. These guides will help you draw DNA.

Step 2

Draw pairs of curved parallel lines between two lines. These lines should be diagonally relative to the lines.

Step 3

Start drawing more pairs of parallel curves on the opposite diagonal from the first. These lines will form an “X” with the first lines.

Step 4

Continue to draw pairs of parallel, curved lines until you reach the bottom of the shape. There, draw another set of lines that look as if they would intersect if continued. Attach the end of each set with a short line.

Step 5

Delete long, straight guides from the figure.

Step 6

Start drawing pairs of parallel lines in each circular opening. Attach them at each end with short lines, and delete instructions if needed. Notice that each opening contains three such bars, or nucleotides. This is because each codon, or bit of information, is made up of a triple nucleotide, or three nucleotides.

Step 7

Draw three nucleotides on the next opening, using a trio of parallel, straight segments. Paste each set at the beginning and delete the guides if necessary.

Step 8

Draw three nucleotides in the next section, erasing the guide lines if needed.

Step 9

Draw your ultimate set of nucleotides, complete the DNA sequence.

Step 10

Color your DNA. Light colors are often used to distinguish different parts of a structure.
